Educare Arizona Spring Update!

Educare Arizona is moving forward with great progress and exciting advancements: with an innovative building design on track to achieve LEED Silver Certification for environmental sustainability, the at-risk children entering Educare Arizona will have not only a Center that uses the latest research in implementing classroom and play space, but a healthy place to learn and grow.

Construction plans are underway, and we look forward to breaking ground this summer, in order to open to children and families in the Autumn of 2011.

Educare Arizona has kicked off its capital campaign, and energized by the support for early learning in Arizona and across the country. By taking part in the discussion, we're hoping to raise the volume on the critical need to invest in children right from birth.

As part of the conversation, the Steve Nash Foundation recently hosted the latest in its Sustainable Kids Series: Healthy Brains, Happy Babies. The session featured Dr. Jill Stamm of the New Directions Institute for Infant Brain Development, and -- despite a steady Scottsdale downpour -- attracted a capacity crowd to the tent outside Moonbeams Sleep Shop. With key hydration provided by glaceau, the Sustainable Kids Series is another way that the Steve Nash Foundation is working to increase access to resources for every child and the people that care for him or her.

New Directions Institute has just announced that it will be honoring the anchor funders of Educare Arizona -- the Steve Nash Foundation, Ibis Foundation, and Whiteman Foundation -- at its annual Science of Early Learning Award Luncheon this coming May. We're happy to be recognized by such a prestigious organization and staunch advocates of early childhood development.

As Educare Arizona progresses, we invite you to learn more at our website -- -- or at
